Stores urged to stop stocking ‘Indian’ Halloween costumes

Stores urged to stop stocking ‘Indian’ Halloween costumes:

Aboriginal people across Canada are encouraging shops to avoid selling the things they call Halloween costumes that are racist, plus they are posting pictures of the costumes to turn the pressure up.

Stacey Marshall Tabor took her daughter to the shop right after she’d been dancing in her regalia to fete Mi’kmaq history month — regalia that appeared not dissimilar in the shop.

“Here I’m attempting to reveal my daughter be proud of who the customers are, be pleased with your culture, be happy with your customs,” she said. “Afterward, we walk in there to buy my daughter a Halloween outfit that is designed to be fun, plus they are mocking her.”

In downtown Toronto, native protesters are picketing for selling such costumes, a Halloween chain store.
